Overview & Highlights

An incredible sight top of many travellers wish list, the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) can be seen all around the Northern polar region surrounding the Arctic Circle.

This ‘auroral zone’ extends over northern Scandinavia, Iceland, Greenland to northern Canada, Alaska and the north coast of Siberia.

One of the most popular short break holidays to see the Northern Lights is northern Norway, around Tromso and the stunning Lofoten Islands.

The dancing lights of the Aurora Borealis light up polar skies with the best time to see them October-November and March, though they are visible flickering in the skies right through the Arctic winter.

There are a range of unusual places to stay across the Arctic and many wilderness lodges have glass igloos or aurora cabins where you can view the sky at night from the comfort of a cosy bedroom!

There are also Ice and Snow hotels from where you can take Northern Lights excursions. One of the most popular is the truly unique Tree Hotel in Sweden.

As well as keeping your eyes to the sky Aurora spotting, there are a whole range of exciting Arctic activities to enjoy, here are just some highlights.

  • Dog sledding through pine forests laiden with thick snow
  • Spend time with traditional Sami reindeer herders
  • Snowmobile across vast frozen lakes
